Ben's just moved to Austin from Connecticut to take a job as a case manager at the Austin City Mission, the first time he's left home and family. But only a short time after he starts work, he meets a man who, though he looks like an extra in a surfing movie, intrigues him. He's hardly seen what life in Austin has to offer, and yet finds he wants to discover that with Seth's help.
The passion burns hot between them--hotter even than Austin in the dog days of summer, and neither man can deny it. As they grow closer, both must decide if they have the necessary ingredients for lasting love, or if the relationship will go up in smoke.
Seth owns and operates a food truck―Ben works at a domestic violence shelter, the attraction is instant in Cassandra Carr’s Melting Into You.
I enjoyed this sweet, fast-paced romance and the characters in the story. Seth and Ben were likeable, each bringing something unique to the relationship; from their desire to form a real connection to their sexual experiences.
I found it refreshing that twenty-something Ben was inexperienced in his sexual exploits and Seth’s willingness to take things at a slower pace. Having said that, I felt the rest of the story moved very quickly through their relationship.
I always enjoy a Ms. Carr story and this one was no different. The ending though left me slightly bereft and wanting more―feeling slightly rushed to finish.
